    correct power?

    looking at a gsi on sunday, has milltek cat back, 1.9 airbox, forge dump valve, eds phase 1.

    made 226bhp and 250ftlb on the rollers. does this sound about correct for these modifications?

    In view of the huge gulf between what Red Dot and Regal offer in terms of cost and performance, is seems an unusual choice to be considering.

    No one on here can say what is "best"

    the fact u are based in Southampton suggests the "best" would be Regal

    We can only advise u to consider all the options when it comes to tuners - personally I would use the most trusted and the one closest should any problems arise

    The fact you are so close to Regal should really be enough of a reason to use them - if you then have any problems in the future then its no mean feat havin it resolved.

    Personally I think theres been a lot of talk on RedDot lately but not enough conclusive evidence to back it up - coupled with the fact ppl are quick to judge and particularly slate certain Tuners I think you will have to do some serious research and most importantly dont just look at the price tag!


    As for the initial question - those figures sound about right for the mods and map mentioned. I personally have more than that on a standard map but thats cos Ive got a few more bits n bobs.

    Uprate the IC and sports cat/precat if not already done and u should see a nice improvement in power without even touching the map!

    the IC and cats are the thing i will be looking to do next, then a vxr turbo and remap.


    i have heard good and bad things about a regal remap, is it a sort of universal map down loaded in to the ecu??? that doesnt get the best from the car, where a live/individual map will??
